omfortable rural living where you can see the stars at night is one way people describe life in Louisa County located just to the east of Albemarle. Others point to its vibrant economy and central location with easy access to the three major urban centers of Charlottesville, Richmond and Fredericksburg. Second home buyers and those who love living year around on the water can choose popular Louisa locations like Blue Ridge Shores, a gated community within commuting distance of Charlottesville, and Lake Anna, a bigger development at the other end of the county. History lovers appreciate Louisa’s rich heritage carefully preserved by the local historical society, located at the Sargeant Museum in the town of Louisa. Residents, guests and visitors are invited to participate in a variety of activities there throughout the year including the annual family-friendly

BY CELESTE M. SMUCKER Heritage Day on Saturday, April 29, an event that offers a glimpse of Louisa’s lifestyle in the years between the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. As elsewhere in our region, Louisa’s real estate market is hot, with inventory shortages and rising prices, and agents have high expectations for 2017 following an impressive 34.5 percent increase in sales for single family detached homes last year. Agents also report increased interest in land sales as many buyers, frustrated by the lack of inventory in resale homes, are choosing to build instead. Others want acreage for privacy, to raise horses and cattle, or to participate in the growing trend of agri-business.

Louisa’s Lifestyle Louisa buyers enjoy the county’s central location, and those who love the outdoors and want to enjoy the beauties of nature, are looking for privacy, or who prefer the amenities of a gated community like Spring Creek at Zion Crossroads or Blue Ridge Shores, will also find much to choose from.

For example, Charlene Easter with Spring Creek Realty shared how much one of her buyers likes the friendliness of the community, but at the same time appreciates that “quiet time is always nearby, especially to enjoy the wide variety of birds.” Still another Spring Creek home owner said: “I spend a lot of time walking through the neighborhood, and I love its natural beauty, the hills and old trees.” Maury Atkins with Roy Wheeler Realty Co. emphasized the importance of Louisa’s central location and its proximity to northern Virginia and DC, accessible via Highway 15 or Interstate 95. He recently worked with a client who relocated to our area from Texas for a job at State Farm. Louisa appealed because of the ease of the commute— her job is just 15 minutes away—but she was also thrilled to get a better deal both price-wise and property tax-wise compared to living closer in. She has a lot of company. A recent Spring Creek buyer explained that while Western Albemarle was appealing, they picked Louisa because, “it was a better value for our dollar.” Of course two career couples with jobs in different cities can live in the Zion Crossroads area of Louisa and easily commute to either Charlottesville, or Short Pump, which is just 40 minutes away on the outskirts of Richmond. There is a special advantage for Charlottesville commuters, explained Sharon Duke, an agent with William A. Cooke, LLC who has worked with a number of what she calls split-commute couples. Whether you are driving to town in the morning or coming home after five, the sun is always behind you and never in your eyes. Recent years have seen a big increase in commercial development in Zion Crossroads where Louisa residents can often find much of what they need saving a trip to town. Lowes and Walmart are popular spots and are also attractive to people who live in the east end of Charlottesville who want to avoid the congestion on 29 North. The recently opened 5th Street Station is also a plus for Zion Crossroads dwellers who want to take advantage of Wegmans and the many other stores, services, restaurants and even a theatre just a short drive down the Interstate.

Louisa’s History On Display at the Annual Heritage Day Back in 1742, Louisa split off from Hanover County when it had enough families to justify a courthouse. Named for Princess Louisa, the youngest daughter of King George II of En-

gland and Queen Caroline, it enjoys a rich history on display at the Sargeant Museum thanks to the Louisa County Historical Society located in the town of Louisa. Historical records dating back to pre-colonial days are available for those who want to explore the history of their property said Elaine Taylor, Director of the Sargeant Museum. She explained that Louisa’s pastoral/agricultural setting draws buyers from places like Northern Virginia and the Historical Society can help give these modern property owners a “sense of place.” For example, the Society has maps of old Indian paths and can also show a home owner who lived on their proper-

ty during the Civil War and earlier, by consulting maps of land grants dating to as early as 1720. Of course, they will also find information about historical figures and events such as Patrick Henry who practiced law in Louisa and represented the county in the House of Burgesses. During the Civil War the Battle of Trevilian Station, the largest cavalry battle of this conflict, was fought in Louisa in June of 1864. There is more to history, though, than learning about big events. “It is difficult for people to understand their roots without seeing [for example] hands-on ways of farming,” Taylor said, which is why the Historical Soci-

ety sponsors events such as the annual Heritage Day that is all about what life was like between the two wars. So many of the resources we take for granted today were non-existent back then Taylor explained and “you can’t understand an agricultural county unless you can see, experience, and learn about life before electricity and mechanization.” For example, there were no furniture stores so people made their own. To get an idea of what that entailed, Heritage Day will feature demonstrations from crafts people such as woodworkers, sawyers (carpenters who saw timber into boards) and two types of chair caners (one doing formal chair caning the other using cattail rushes) to demonstrate some of these lost arts. Of course animals were used for everything, and the Old Dominion Draft Horse and Mule Association will be there doing a harnessing demo. Visitors can also observe blacksmiths and horse wranglers as well as other types of crafts persons such as weavers, a spinner, a tanner, a tobacconist, telegraphers, and toymakers. Heritage day will also have special events for the younger generation with demonstrations of how to make cornshuck dolls and how to shell and grind corn. A Native American will teach kids about Indian sign language and face painting, Taylor said describing him as someone who “loves working with kids and showing them a quiet way to move through the world in harmony with nature.” The festival draws people from DC, Charlottesville, Richmond and Fredericksburg and is expected to bring more than the 600 who attended last year’s event. To join the fun mark your calendar for Saturday April 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine on the grounds of the Sargeant Museum in the town of Louisa. Plan to arrive early to take advantage of all the different events. Admission is free. Visit the Louisa County Historical Society website for more details.

Louisa’s Real Estate Market Agents are excited about this year’s market that got off to a good start and is expected to continue to be strong. For example, Dan Girouard, Broker and VP of Subdivision Operation at the gated community of Spring Creek said, “the market here at Zion Crossroads is doing great. Our builders are getting ready for a very busy year and offer brand new decorated model homes for our guests to preview. Resales are at an all-time low with only 19 currently available with an average ‘days on market’ of 91, which is lower than Spring.”

As long as homes are well-priced they will sell. She added that one of her Louisa buyers ended up having to look in nearby Goochland because they couldn’t find what they wanted in Louisa. Duke also just sold an 82 acre piece of property to some buyers who wanted privacy, while still another prospect called about finding a 10+ acre lot because they didn’t see one for sale when they looked online.

ternet access across the county, which appeals to everyone, especially to telecommuters and others who work from home. Atkins described the Louisa market as “good, strong,” adding that he is seeing price increases throughout the residential sector. He has also seen increased interest from investors and observed the sale of “a plethora of building lots,” including some for which development was complete before the recession but never sold. In what he sees as the “last stage of recovery,” developers are starting to seek out larger tracts for future development.

While multiple contracts on the same house are common in some areas of Charlottesville, agents are beginning to see that kind of interest in Louisa as well. Duke took a listing on a “distressed property,” and was surprised when two investors competed for the chance to renovate and rent it. James Dickerson with Charlottesville Solutions described the current Louisa market as “improving,” from Lake Anna to Charlottesville. He added that many Baby Boomers are retiring and downsizing, while some that are still working are buying property now—in some cases second home or vacation type property—to enjoy on weekends and eventually to live in after retirement. He has also noticed Millennials moving out of rental and into home ownership. Recently he had clients from far away San Francisco who wanted a lifestyle free of congestion where they could still count on having good health care. They chose Louisa because of its proximity to DC, the mountains, and the beach, plus its easy access to Universities in both Charlottesville and Richmond. Dickerson added that it definitely helps that Louisa has high speed in-

With all of this activity are there still options for first time buyers in Louisa? The answer is yes but they need to act fast. Duke has some first timers who can only look at property on weekends. Unfortunately that means they have lost out on some homes that came on the market during the week and sold before the weekend arrived. Are you longing for a quiet rural lifestyle with privacy and easy access to town? If so, talk to your agent about Louisa, but be prepared to act quickly, as inventory is low and the well priced homes won’t last.

“I

t’s critically important to have a house show well when it’s time to sell,” declares REALTOR® Byrd Abbott, an associate broker with Roy Wheeler Realty Co. “Some tweaking and paring down often needs to be done because it’s so much easier to present a staged home.”

What Exactly Is Staging? Often it’s hard for homeowners to really see their own dwelling because they are emotionally and financially invested in it. It’s difficult to view it as a “product” competing with other places for sale. “Staging” invites potential buyers to visualize their furniture in the spacious living room, their china cupboard in the cheerful dining room, their family’s portrait over the mantel. Also, first impressions are crucial, so maximize curb appeal with neatly trimmed bushes, a nice green lawn, and fresh mulch on the flower beds. Have bicycles, garden equipment, toys, and trash cans out of sight. Power wash the house if necessary and have a bright, clean front door. Professional window cleaning does wonders to freshen a property. Once inside the front door, staging comes into play. Interior design reflects the homeowner’s taste, lifestyle, and color palette, but when a property is on the market, it’s time to provide a fresh palette that is ready for someone else to move in and make their own. First, people shopping for a home don’t want a place that needs lots of work. The biggest problem in showing many homes is Too Much Stuff. It makes any house feel small. Be ruthless in disposing of items, or at least storing them off the property. Get rid of clutter. Next, ‘de-personalize’ the place. Remember, you want potential buyers to see themselves in the house, not your family. Store away the wedding photos, get the children’s artwork off the fridge, and their sports trophies off the mantel. “You don’t have to take down every single personal thing,” REALTOR® Abbott says. “You want buyers to see that a real family has enjoyed this home, but they don’t need to see every last horse ribbon.” You want lookers to recognize a house that’s friendly, tidy, and clean smelling without overpowering air freshener scents. Be especially aware of pet odors, since animals can be a big turn-off for some people. Hide pet items (especially cat trees and litter boxes) when potential buyers are ex-

TO SELL BY MARILYN PRIBUS

pected and remove pets from the house and yard. Staging may be most important in an empty house, Abbott comments. “Empty rooms are perceived as being smaller than they really are,” she says, “and having some minimal furniture helps people envision how they could fit in.”

Room-by-Room Strategies The lighter a room, the more spacious it will appear, so open the blinds and

turn on lamps. Keep rooms from looking crowded by reducing the amount or size of furniture. Painting is an economical investment in optimizing the interior of any house. The best strategy is to use a neutral color throughout, but this doesn’t mean just plain white. There are hundreds of shades of white, and these days pale greys and greens are also deemed neutral. Since the kitchen is a key selling point, make it bright. Having too many things on the counters implies there

isn’t ample storage. Still, it’s a good idea to display a few items such as a set of up-to-date canisters, a bowl of fresh fruit, and some colorful dish towels to show the kitchen is usable. Floors, counters, sinks, and cabinets (including interiors) should be spotless. It’s also best to present rooms as having a single purpose. For instance, make the guest room strictly a guest room rather than a combination bedroom/office. If possible, make children’s rooms gender neutral and keep them tidy with covered storage tubs. At the same time, it’s good to have a “kid zone” showing there is plenty of space to play. Bathrooms are very personal spaces so take particular care. Get bathrobes off the back of the door and make the entire room sparkle. Keeping toiletries (especially toothbrushes) in baskets makes it easy to stash them out of sight when lookers are expected. Potential buyers don’t hesitate to inspect closets, so be sure they are orderly and clean with nary a trace of musty odors. Demonstrate adequate storage by minimizing items so there is empty space on shelves and clothes aren’t jammed together on the rods. Although staging is less important in garages or cellars, they contribute to the overall impression of a property. Keep things tidy. Minimize mildewy smells. If garage walls are scarred, consider a quick coat of paint. People understand that when you move you’ll have packing boxes around, but keep them orderly or spring for a short-term storage unit. Remember, you always want to present a picture of generous storage capacity. Abbott concedes that staging may not increase the ultimate selling price of a property, but it can definitely make a place stand out among the competition and may well reduce its time on the market. Whether you stage your own house or hire a professional, remember the key points to attract would-be buyers: de-clutter, de-personalize, and stay neutral. They can really make a difference in helping a property sell. n When Marilyn and her husband prepared to move to Albemarle County ten years ago, they staged their California house by putting nearly half their furniture in storage, keeping fresh flowers everywhere, and stashing the dog’s dishes in the dishwasher while they walked her around and around the block whenever REALTORS ® showed the property.

The biggest problem in showing many homes is Too Much Stuff.
